New Houses in Sirigual

In El Salvador, 32% of household heads are women (UNDP 2004). In the small hamlet of Sirigual, near Abelines, this statistic is exemplified in the lives of three poor women: Miriam, Olga, and Josefa. Each of these women have struggled for years to provide for their families. However, the local church is striving to break the pattern of poverty that has marked their lives by providing a home for each of their families. These homes will mean more than a dry place to sleep at night; The homes signify the beginning of a new life full of joy, dignity and hope.
